Designing and building your custom piece opens up a world of options to meet your specific vision and needs.
Following the process creates a framework for success. It also allows your project to move at the pace your project needs to proceed at. Expedited or matched to other timelines, the process moves effectively forward.
Understanding your needs, ideas, constraints, and vision are the start for all projects. Whether it is a detailed plan, or simply rough dimension, I spend time understanding everything possible about the project possible. Materials, style, colors, dimensions, finishes, uses, and budget.
From the interview process, I initiate a Project Plan starting with initial design that we will work through multiple iterations arriving at a final design. Some projects may include a Design Deposit.
The Project Plan will expand upon the Final Design and will include project parameters, materials, timeline, and cost estimates. Upon final approval, a Project Initiation Deposit will be collected and your project will be added to the queue and scheduled and materials will be acquired/prepared.
With materials staged and prepared, the project begins in earnest. Often this includes drying materials, milling, crafting, and finishing. This process can take days, weeks, or often months with drying and finishing often requiring inflexible timelines. Project updates will be provided regularly keeping you appraised of the progress of your piece.
Delivery of your piece will be coordinated in a manner that meets your needs and best protects the piece.
